The protests at Trump’s rallies come ahead of key primaries Tuesday. On the Republican side, the key prizes are Florida and Ohio, where the winner takes all of the states’ delegates. On the Democratic side, delegates are awarded proportionally, with all eyes on Florida, Illinois and Ohio. Here in New York City, Sanders’ supporters, many of them formerly involved with Occupy Wall Street, gathered in Zuccotti Park, the birthplace of Occupy, to phone bank for Sanders. Beka Economopoulos organized the action.
Beka Economopoulos: “We were really inspired by the incredible amount of grassroots momentum and energy that’s been inspired by the Sanders campaign and its critique of Wall Street, of money in politics and a rigged economy. We wanted to extend that conversation as long as possible and engage many more people in this political revolution. So that’s what we’re doing here in Zuccotti Park.”
